Introducing Cherry!

Monday 21 October 2013

I am so excited to be introducing you guys to my lovely new baby, Cherry! I wonder if you can guess how I came up with the name...

 Seeing as it's only been a week since my accident I know how lucky I am to already have a new car! I also know how lucky I am that I found such a good little car. So this is my '02' plate Renault Clio, and it only has a mere 51,000 miles on it! It has electric windows, central locking, and power steering, which are all things that are very new to me! The breaks are much more sensitive than my old car, and as such I am having a few hard breaking moments, but I have only been driving it for an hour...

Here are a few more pictures of my lovely new baby!

I'm so in love with this car, it doesn't fight back when I'm driving it, and it actually works. The only thing that I don't really like, and that's the way that you put it into reverse, but that is standard across all Renault's, because my mum's car is the same. All in all I am a very lucky girl!

Open for business!

Thursday 17 October 2013

Ever since the beginning of Youtube, I have longed to be a Youtuber. However my self-consciousness, and lack of equipment really put me off. At the beginning of this year I bought a DSLR camera and I promised myself that I would start making videos, but it didn't happen. Then in August I attended 'Summer in the City' the biggest Youtube gathering in the UK. After that I told myself, I'll start making videos, but it still didn't happen. Well no more procrastination... My opening video is here!

This tag video was created by the lovely Carrie Hope Fletcher of itswaypastmybedtime, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for my first video! I hope you enjoy it, let me know what you thought!

Underneath the video I have also posted the questions I answered, and I would love to see some of you answering them too, either in video format, or just on your blog. When you've done it, please tweet me @Alyssia_Rose, I would love to read/see them.

Re-evaluating what is important...

Monday 14 October 2013

On Friday I was involved in a car accident. My tires slid on the wet road, and put me in the opposite line of traffic where I was heading towards a tractor. I swerved to avoid hitting the tractor head on, and managed to bounce off of it's tire, before hitting the bank and rolling my car. This was one of the most terrifying experiences of my entire life. As I was moving towards the tractor it was as if time slowed down, and I thought about all the people that I loved, and that I would leave behind... For a second after the accident, I wondered if I had actually died. Next thing I knew there was a woman at my window, making sure if I was OK, and instantly phoning the police and ambulance for me. All I wanted to do was get out of the car, considering that I was hanging upside down with only the seat belt holding me in. Someone called my mum for me and when she arrived she took my hands an squeezed it tightly, tears falling from her eyes. All I could say was, 'I'm OK'. When the ambulance arrived and popped their head into the car to check I was fine, I even managed to crack a joke. "You OK?", my reply: "Yeah, just hanging around". Once they got me out of the car we realised that I only had one tiny cut on my hand. They still checked me over, and I had to be breathalyzed to make sure I wasn't drink driving, and we were on our way. The biggest casualty in all of this was my poor little micra Tinkerbell. Although she did a bloody good job of protecting me.

From the back she looks spotless, but this picture shows the majority of the damage. Ever since the accident I've felt really strange. Like I'm a dead woman walking... I can't really explain it, I just feel like I shouldn't be here. Even though I'm very glad that I still am!

This whole experience has really gotten me thinking about what I want to do with my life, and it's motivating me to work towards my end goal. In the past few days, I've really been thinking about the person I am, and the person that I really want to be. There are a couple of changes that I need to make, and I'm hoping to begin making those shortly. One of my biggest goals is to move on in my relationships, and I began taking steps on that front yesterday, more about that to come soon.

So the moral of the story here is, if there is something you want to do/someone you want to be, then seize your chance before it is too late!

My Instaweek #9

Wednesday 9 October 2013

I thought that it was about time that we caught up with what I have been up to in the world of instagram! I got my new iPhone 5S a few weeks ago, and as such I have finally begun taking selfies! Hence why you may have noticed a bit of a spike in the amount that I post on instagram, hopefully you've been enjoying it as much as I have.

So there you have it, a little bit of a picture diary of sorts. I've had a very enjoyable few weeks, and these pictures document that well.
